Students should arrive to school no earlier than 7:45 A.M.
Classes begin at 8:20 a.m. Students arriving later than the 8:20 a.m. Tardy Bell time MUST be checked in at the MAIN OFFICE by a parent or guardian. Students will receive a PASS to admit them to class.
When a student is absent from school, a parent or guardian should call the school by 10:00 a.m. that day using the attendance line 350-4271. Please include the parent/guardian name, student’s name, & reason for absence. After 72 hours, unverified absences will be noted as a truancy.
A parent call does NOT waive a tardy or absence.
If your student will be checking out during the school day for an appointment, you can call the school in advance at 350-4270 to obtain a Permit to Leave for your student. They should be waiting in the office upon your arrival. Please come into the main office and CHECK your student out. This is for the SAFETY of our students. Upon return to the school, please CHECK your student back in. If your student is bringing a note back from his/her appointment, it is NOT NECESSARY for the parent to check the student back in. Their excuse from the appointment serves that purpose. All absences that can be documented with a doctor’s note are WAIVED and will not count towards the 6 absenses allowed per semester. Please make sure to get those notes to us and ASK for them from your scheduled appointments.
Thank you for your cooperation.
A third or fourth tardy in one subject may result in a student being assigned After School Detention.The alternating day calendar for music and PE for 6th grade will follow the Even/Odd days on the calendar. For example, a 3(E) class would meet 3rd period on Even numbered calendar days like September 4, and 3(O) class would meet 3rd period on Odd numbered calendar days like September 5.
